About a week ago the indicators which show volume, brightness and other function features disappeared. I can still turn these up and down, but don't have an indicator showing me the levels.
I'd like to know why this happened rather suddenly? And how can I fix it?

About a week ago the indicator bar which shows what's happening with volume, brightness, and other functions disappeared, but the functions still work and can be changed.
Besides adding Skpye and a conexant audio device apps, and usual windows updates, I don't think anything has changed?
Why did the indicator disappear and how do I get it back?

SEE BELOW - PROBLEM IS NOT SOLVED: Okay, so problem solved, though I'm not sure what I did exactly.
On the off chance that the conexant audio app was the problem, I uninstalled it. When windows rebooted, i got a message that I had no audio device and that windows was trying to fix the problem. To confirm this, I tried to watch somethng on Netflix and sure enough, no sound.
However, a moment later when i went back to Netflix, I had sound AND the indicator bars have returned, AND the audio device is on my laptop, showing that it was installed (could it be reinstalled?) today!

Okay, so problem is not solved! I went back to the computer just now and without rythme or reason, the indicator bar is now NOT SHOWING UP!!!!! What is happening here? Why can't a seeming essential function of this computer work?
